Trundle Races. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 20 May 1898
A race meeting under the auspices of She Trundle Jockey Club, was held on Tueaday last. The attendant con ditions were hardly favorable, for in addition to the drawback of a drizzling rain falling the majority of farmers resident in the vicinity were taking advantage of the desirable break in the weattier and were pushing plough ing operations on as speedily" as pos sible. Consequently the attendance was hardly.up to the mark. Parkes was particularly w.ell represented. The racing was held in Mr. Croft's pad dock, owing to the new racecourse not being quite in apple-pie order. On the whole the racing was good, and it was unfortunate that an awkward contre temps should have occurred in connec tion with the first race, which had the effect of lopping off the meeting a bulky slice of its most pleasant Features. In this race Tridentson, Victorine, Rcdlight, Arthur Orion, and JLrilby faced the starter and were duly sent on their journey. After an exciting contest Arthur Orton and Victorin...
Our Sydney Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 20 May 1898
(prom our own correspondent.) The sad tales of She sea, ao a result of the recent gale, are nor/ closed, Altogether about 30 lives were lost, three or four ships, and some thou sands of pounds worth of cargo. The next act of the drama of life and death will be the enquiry by the Marine Board, who it will be remembered, is a body of whom a certain section in Parliament have but a poor opinion. Ever since there was a Labor Party they have been striving to obtam an , Amendment Act providing for repre sentation thereon of the sailors them selves. When Mr. Keid came mtn power one of the first Bills that the Upper House threw out endeavored to make this alteration. Since then things have settled down, just as many a coal-laden ship has done, without anyone ever hearing anything more about it. However, be that as it may, the Board are a body of experts, and in that respect they are thoroughly competent to inquire into the facta of the present case. Perhaps it is not advisable to get ahead ...

Condobolin Chips. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 20 May 1898
Condobolin Chips, Our correspondent writes :--The Baihvay Commissioners paid a visit to the terminus on Thursday. The visit was evidently of a semi-private character. Some few weeks ago when a com mittee representing the townspeople waited on the traffic manager and others at Sydney, it was promised that the Councillors of the municipality would be advised of the visit of the department, in.respect to hearing the people's claim for a daily train service, and they were consequently indignant when the train arrived the other day unannounced. There was consequently no one to meet the railway officers and the question of a daily mail service has again been shelved.—The weather is very dry and cloudy with strong indications of rain* Another fall of a couple of inches would do a vast amount of good.

The Storyteller. The Gipsy's Daughter. CHAPTER VIII. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 20 May 1898
Lady Clemence passed a rest less night, mourning over her weakness and deficiencies in the training of her son. Why had she &lt; not forced him early to set " I ought" before " I would." Rose, she was up early the next morning, hoping that her lover would call on her with the flush of morning. As he did not come she became angry and despairing, and when at last from a place where she watched the road, she saw the St. Maurice liveries in the sun, and a lady alone in a barouche, she fled back to the house and prepared herself for defiance. Rose was one of those people who are for ever making enemies. Their suspicions are the dragon's teeth, that b^.r on every hand a crop of armed foes. To meet her lover Rose had put on one of those simple gowns of sprinkled pink, which Victor had praised. But when she realised that she was to meet, not Sir Victor, but Lady Clemence, she rushed up to her room telling her self ' she would show her that she knew how things ought to be as well as ...
CHAPTER IX. MATERNAL ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 20 May 1898
CHAPTER IX. MATERNAL ADVICE. If Lady Clemence had really believed that Rose meant what she said, that she ' would have no more to do with Sir Victor,' she would have been vastly re lieved. But she felt sure that Rose did nob mean it, and would not abide by it, and she also felt sure that in this first flush of his passion Victor would not accept this cry of anger as final. She rode home in even greater dismay than she had gone forth. After she had taken a luncheon in her room Sir Yictor came to her. 'Well mother! Did you see her ? Is she not beautiful ?' ' Yes my son? very beautiful— and very untrained.' ' Oh, that is nothing ; ^ we can easily train her; it will be a pleasure.' ' I saw plainly that she lacked taste and neatness ; her sitting room was in sad disorder.' 4 But mother, what possible difference does that make? What do we keep servants for if not lo attend to little matters of order ? You do not put by your own thing—you leave it to your maid.' ' Yes, dear Yictor. But if ...
